INSTEAD of having a business meeting on the fourth Monday of August we will be celebrating a very busy 2014-5 year — rally, hearing, meetings with legislators, 50th Medicare birthday, TR Reid-visit and much hard work! So it is time for a picnic-potluck.
Bring food you'd like to share: a casserole, a salad, a main dish or dessert—whatever you like and enough for a few others too. If you have plastic or metal plates, and silver and napkins, bring them along! and we’ll have some recyclable ware if you do not; we’ll take home what’s leftover and compost what waste we produce. If you have a large cloth tablecloth, bring it along and don’t forget it when you go home. We can relax and refresh, and get prepared to enjoy a provocative play (called “Mercy Killers”) on Sept. 19, 7 p.m., at Takena Hall at LBCC (tickets available at the potluck and at Grassroots Books too).
We’ll have food and conversation and a short program including a visit from the Health Care for All Oregon’s Outreach board member Nancy Sullivan who will very briefly describe strategies that HCAO is considering. We’ll also introduce a few other distinguished guests and make a few announcements, but mainly we’ll enjoy the evening. You can take a minute to have a photo petition made to show your legislators you favor health care for all, too.
